IHG Rewards was already winning the fall hotel promotion contest with their Accelerate promotion that runs through December 31st and has varying bonuses, but awards new IHG members two award nights to use at any IHG property around the world with as few as four eligible total stays.  You can get full details of that promotion here, but now IHG is adding second promotion that stacks with the Accelerate promo and will run through February 15, 2016 for check-ins.

This new promotion is called “Priceless Surprises” and it is for IHG Rewards members who are also MasterCard cardholders.  Registration will open at later this week, but I have a preview now.


Here are the details about the new Priceless Surprises promotion that were shared with me by IHG.

  • Use a MasterCard* to book and stay at any IHG hotel in the world between Nov. 15, 2015 – Feb. 15, 2016 (Guests can check out up to Feb. 29, 2016 as long as they have checked in by Feb. 15, 2016)
  • On the first stay, members will receive 1,000 IHG Rewards Club bonus points
  • On the second stay, and every single stay thereafter, guests will receive a Priceless Surprise every time.  Priceless Surprises can include:
    • Priceless trips to New York City, Orlando or Paris
    • One million IHG Rewards Club Points
    • $50 prepaid MasterCard gift card
    •  A free night at any IHG hotel in the world … and more

I’m sure that most of the surprises are not $2500 gift cards and free trips, but I’m still excited to hear they are offering a second promo on top of the one they were already running…especially when some chains (cough, Hyatt, cough) don’t seem to have any bonus promotion going on this fall.

  1. I agree that most ‘winners’ are not going to win the advertised $2500 gift cards.. but still this is a very interesting promotion. Plus being able to dip in to both promotions is definitely making me rethink my plans to lean toward IHG.. 😉 Looks like marketing is working….

  2. I had planned on staying two nights at an SPG on an upcoming trip to get my 500 bonus points. I might turn that trip into “two stays” at an IHG instead. Not sure.

    @mommypoints: what is the best IHG Mastercard offer currently that you are aware of?

    • G, best public offer I believe is 60k. Often some have targeted offers in their account for 80k or sometimes even 80k + $50 statement credit.

      • Maybe I will call IHG and inquire. I’m not getting a CC unless it has the 80K promo at least, given that I’m sure it will come back at some point.

    • Good question. Additionally, If you use a reward night, but purchase dinner or something at the hotel would that count? Also, if you already have a room booked, but the stay is not until January would that count? Or would I have to cancel and rebook to qualify? Thanks.

    • Yes, but have to make note in comment section online with second guest name. Can’t actually change main name to theirs.
